Interactive Portal Shares Information About Comprehensive Zoning Map ProcessBaltimore County’s Department of Planning has launched a new interactive web dashboard displaying zoning issues raised during the 2020 Comprehensive Zoning Map Process (CZMP), making the process more accessible to county residents.
Every four years, Baltimore County residents may review the zoning classifications of any property in the county and request changes. Spanning 12 months, the process seeks input from residents, property owners, the Planning Board, county staff and the County Council. Ultimately, the County Council decides on whether to change a property’s zoning, taking a final vote in September 2020.
The new 2020 CZMP dashboard monitors, tracks, and assesses zoning issue request data. This tool can be used to view zoning statistics of all areas in the County that are impacted by a zoning issue request. The statistics can be shown at the countywide level, council district level or by issue.
“Since taking office, my administration has made it a priority to make county services more accessible and transparent,” County Executive Johnny Olszewski said. “The Comprehensive Zoning Map Process is a critical step in determining land use and planning for our county, and we’re committed to making this process open and accessible to all of our residents.”
